The Zagat Review
BBQ fixes are sated at this “funky” Fort Greene standby offering “mouthwatering” , “smoky” pit meats washed down with “top-shelf bourbons” ; maybe it's a bit “rough around the edges” , but factor in “budget” prices and most will happily “eat while standing” “'cuz it's so packed” (especially “pre-BAM and Barclays events” ).

Amazing BBQ experience, the Mac n Cheese was out of this world. We had the crispy jumbo shrimp, Brisket sandwich and fries. The shrimp was really good with an amazing dipping sauce. The brisket was SUPER tender and the sauces made it so good! The fries were also really good, the salt they sprinkle on them is really tasty and makes you want more and more. If I lived in the area, this would definitely be a regular spot for me.

It's probably be more of a 3.5. Food was really good but the service was terrible. Once seated it took a while for anyone to come over and then they asked us directly if we were ready to order. No drink order first. Food did come out quick but we asked for ketchup and it was never delivered. We had to get the waitresses attention to refill water. We got the brisket and spare ribs, very good and great portions. Also very affordable. The table next to us ordered the catfish and sent it back after a few bites, said it didn't taste right. Just an FYI. I feel like they can fix the service issues to make this place better.

Stopped in with my wife for a quick bite before the Nets game last nite and was pleasantly surprised. I had a half rack of ribs, french fries and corn bread. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich and a side of mac n cheese. Everything was delicious. A little spicy but not over the top. The service was excellent as well.
